Yes, I sort of killed my drive I think.
I didn't see the thread that lists the drives that are upgradeable and the drives that aren't.
So I went and tried to upgrade my firmware to a 16X drive and it did it with pflash, but then it failed on atapi or whatever it said.
Now my dvd drive doesn't work either, but that is easily fixed by taking the lite-on off the chain.
I tried using firmware for the 12101B from the firmware site but I couldn't upgrade it of course, because something about ATAPI won't let me do anything anymore.
If there's any hope, please help me out.
However it's not really a big loss because I am getting an LG 40X in the mail tomorrow.
I just wanted to be able to use both drives.
